The Economics of Early Childhood

Investing in Infants and Toddlers: The Economics of
Early Childhood

Given the current slowdown of our nation’s economy, much attention is being paid to the challenges faced by families grappling with the rising cost of food, transportation, and other basic necessities.

Economic researchers who study issues of human capital (education and skills) are increasingly coming to the conclusion that early childhood professionals have known all along: investing in high-quality early childhood programs reaps considerable societal savings and numerous individual and social benefits.
